Earlier in the year we were looking for some small tables for alongside our sofa. We didn't want anything too large - as that would just encourage clutter - and I ruled out a traditional coffee table as it just wouldn't work for us, well me. We had one when we first moved in and I was forever walking into it, which was strange really as I'd had a larger, squarer, lower coffee table in my previous Living room.
We were looking for something that was practical as we really wanted somewhere to put a cup of tea or a glass of wine safely. We wanted something that would fit with the rest of our decor and originally ruled out wood as we have a wooden floor and wooden treads on the spiral stairs. There's also the reclaimed teak unit as well as some light Ikea storage units. And we thought it might be wood overload.
